Your house is going to start looking a lot like JP's with all of that old Cruiser iron sitting around.

NICE!! The parts trucks are paying off now. Glad I decided to tear the diffs apart for easier storage.
Does anyone know what brand this one is?

Hell yeah! First I will double check ratio for easiest install. There is no indication of wear to the 3rd member. Looks to be in excellent condition.
